It was chaos in cape town, South Africa after a train was involved in what was described as a horrible fire accident. One person has died and four women have been left injured – one seriously – after a South African train was allegedly set ablaze on Wednesday. Cape Town Fire and Rescue Service press officer Theo Layne told the BBC emergency services were on the scene at 09:00 local time (07:00 GMT).


The fire destroyed two carriages, and left the body of the deceased so badly burnt it was impossible to tell whether they were a man or woman, he said.


Arson is suspected, Mr Layne added.


This is the second time in a month a Cape Town train has caught fire. No one is believed to have been hurt in that incident.
